Welcome to Apple Discussions!
That display has a standard VGA input, meaning that it is compatible with the mini by using the DVI->VGA adapter which comes with the system.
It's true that there are some displays which have proven difficult with the mini, though most are not standard monitors so much as variants of TVs which don't feed the mini with the correct data it needs to correctly identify the screen type and display options. I've not come across a VGA-based Dell display that doesn't work however (and I've actually got one - a 178FPW) connected to the G4 mini on my desk, working perfectly well.
In terms of performance, the 2GHz mini will give you somewhat better performance, but not markedly so. It would be better, in terms of overall system performance, to get a 1.8 model with 2Gb RAM than a 2GHz model with the base 1Gb memory.
